Homemade Glutinous Rice Wine
The best part of home-brewing, beside drinking of course, is bottling! Seeing the beer filling up the bottles, capping them, and immediately started the countdown!! This batch of beer is lighter, sweeter, less alcohol (I forgot to take initial measurement, but packing stated ~4%), and smell really good. Perfect for CNY family re-union!
This is it! After 30 days, you get about 8 bottles of these sweet glutinous rice wine.Ideally the bottles should be dark color like those red wine bottles. So keep them in dry cool place and away from sunlight. They can last for months in room temperature without turning darker or turning sour. For best result, store them in the refrigerator and they will remain the same freshness for years.Cheers!!!*contact me for free sample!
This the the bottom layer sediments. It is a mixture of powdery rice paste from both the glutinous rice & red yeast rice and yeasts residue. This is the best potion for marinade meat or making thick soupy or gravy in some traditional rice wine dishes.
Dispensing off the bottom layer and then bottling the remaining clearer portion of wine.
A day after harvesting, the wine has "settled" and is ready for bottling. The top level is clearer wine and the bottom is the sediments. We only want to top part.*keep it longer this way, the clearer the wine would be.
